I am new to fish and I only have a 5.5g tank o.O I was wondering what sand is like in a tank. How is sand cleaned? I'm afraid if I use a siphon, it will suck up all the sand...

is this a freshwater or saltwater tank? if its a saltwater that's really small! if its a freshwater just put your finger over the outlet of the syphon tube to control the flow so you don't suck any sand up just the detris.
